The Queen’s Tower Estate was born out of Queen Amalia’s vision of the establishment of a model agricultural facility, where innovative production methods were to be applied aiming to the modernization of the greek agronomy. A vineyard was one the first plantations of the estate. Concerning the formation of 18 hectares of the initial vineyard , experienced viticulturists coming from Megara, were hired. The personality of this model farm embed by its visionary, has been present to date.

The cultivation of 4 hectares, the area that the vineyard covers today, is organic, as well as the one of the rest of the plantations existing inside the property (pistachio trees, olive trees). The vineyard is located in the same place where the original vineyard was (during the Queen’s era). The varieties that are planted are wine grape varieties, greek and others originated from Europe, white and red.

The tour guide in the Tower is considered a unique experience. It last 2.5 hrs and begins with the reception of the visitors in the buildings of the estate and furthers with the visit to the monument of the Tower ( indoors, outdoors). The tour at the second floor of the Tower always takes place without shoes, in order to protect the marvelous floor (parquet-marquetry) from harm.

The tour, also, includes a stroll around the gardens of the estate, its stables, and the organic vineyard, as well as the tour in the winery.

At the end of the tour, the visitors have the opportunity of a tasting of our wines accompanied with pies of greens and cheeses.
